Inspector Lee Gordon from the Safer Travel Partnership said today's railway dangers event will involve a "high level of interaction with the schoolchildren". He said:
This year, we will have three very different scenarios, focussing on rail, bus and road issues, as we work with our partners at West Midlands Fire Service to deliver key safety messages to 1,700 Year 8 and 9 youngsters who will be taking part next week.
Additionally, there will also be a Forum Theatre element with drama students from Great Barr performing a play to further drive home the message that Anti-Social Behaviour on public transport has a negative impact on other passengers and communities.
Once again, we want this to be as realistic as possible to underline the dangers that can exist on the railway, on buses and on roads.
